The Ripley's Museum

I LOVE Ripley's museums.
Seriously, I would drive all over the darn country to see them all.
I am a self proclaimed, queen of useless, freaky information.
I think my ultimate dream calling in life would be to acheive the curator status for one of these fine establishments.
I mean how can you not love deformed creatures?

They are twice as nice!

A dress made from starbursts wrappers.

A collage of dryer lint.

A sideshow "mermaid body" made from a monkey and a fish.

Whale's ear drums.

Shrunken heads, and THE recipe on how to do it....

A mummified head.

The worlds tallest man replica.

Cryptozoological foot prints,

ya know, bigfoot, a werewolf, and THE abominable snow man.
And just so you know, YES, they climbed up on a really big chair.

It was a magnificent way to blow your mind for two whole hours.

Just so you know: The really tall guy doesn't seem to have a head. ;)

I don't know if I'd be fascinated or horrified.
